Why FCEVs?

Fuel cell electric vehicles will provide customers with a no-compromise electric-drive vehicle with longer range, quick refill, high performance and comfort along with zero emissions and a low-carbon and potentially renewable fuel.

How does it work?

Fuel cells use locally produced hydrogen to create electrcity, which powers the vehicle. An important part of the alternative fuel vehicle portfolio, FCEVs will help reduce pollution and greenhouse gasA gas in Earth's atmosphere that traps heat and can contribute to global warming. Carbon dioxide and methane are two GHGs. emissions.

When can I buy one?

Several automakers plan to introduce FCEVs to the California commercial market beginning in 2015. Hydrogen stations are open, under construction and planned to support the coming vehicles.
